We are loving the textured yet delicate designs carried throughout the suite.

I have always been a fan of using a post card RSVP. This time was no exception.

An adorable return address is always a must. I love the fact that the wedding date is featured on the back of the flap as well!

A huge thank you to the ladies of Giddy Ink for sharing this lovely invitation! I am loving every little detail of this suite!

...Penned & Pretty Calligraphy: Leslie's Wedding Invitation Envelopes...

In the previous post, I shared Leslie's wedding invitation suite with you. Now, allow me to show you how my Penned & Pretty calligraphy popped with white ink against the aubergine envelopes she picked out.

Leslie chose the "Pretty Perfect" calligraphy style to grace the outer envelopes of her wedding invitations. I think we were both pleased with the result!

...Leslie's Suite...

We had the absolute privilege of adorning Leslie's wedding invitation envelopes with our pretty little calligraphy. Pictures of the actual calligraphy are sure to follow, but we couldn't wait to show you her wedding invitation suite.
Gourmet Invitations designed the suite for the New Year's Eve wedding and it is glamorous, to say the least!The jewel tones were carried throughout the wedding invitation as well as the accompanying accommodations insert card.
Below is the back of the RSVP return postcard. We are loving all the details, various fonts and the custom postage stamp!
Thanks to Daisy Jean of Pixel and Hank for letting us know, via twitter {@pennedandpretty}, that Gourmet Invitations had posted this lovely invitation suite!

...Penned & Pretty Calligraphy: Kathryn's Escort Cards...

My clients Kathryn & Scott recently had one of the most adorable fall weddings I've ever seen. Nicole Green photographed their wedding and over at tying the knot I'm featuring snippets of the wedding photos today!
I also had the honor of doing the calligraphy on the outer envelopes of Kathryn & Scott's classy wedding invitations a few months ago. If I do say so myself, they turned out quite lovely! Nicole shared this little gem of a photo with me so that we could see just how adorable the escort cards I penned were a perfect complimentary detail to their special day.

...Boston or Washington...

I first saw this lovely save the date over at Red & White bride and just had to share!
Etsy seller taylortt2 of Taylors Paperie offers various city collections featuring gorgeous city skylines and cute little sailboats floating in ports. I am a fan of the Boston {above} and Washington D.C. {below} save the dates!
The Washington DC Invitation Collection features a silhouette of the DC's most prominent skyline, including the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial and the lovely town homes represent Georgetown. The fonts can be altered and the background silhouette can be changed into any color.

...Penned & Pretty Calligraphy: Lynsey's Suite...

April was the designer behind the invitations for my recent clients lynsey & brian. I loved the slate blue outer envelopes and RSVP envelopes {shown below} that were made penned and pretty with my calligraphy, but I never got to see the final end result until April blogged the pictures taken by Critsey Rowe. The invitation suite along with our RSVP envelope, turned out beautifully. In case you were wondering, Lynsey and Bryan selected the Pretty Perfect style in a chocolate ink to grace their envelopes. You can see a picture of the outer envelopes I addressed for lynsey & brian here.

Thanks to Critsey Rowe for capturing my work so beautifully! Pictures used with expressed permission.
